    LIVESTREAM HD500


    Livestream Studio HD500 features 5 HD/SD SDI Inputs and 5 Live Video Outputs (HD/SD SDI, HDMI, Component, S-Video, Composite) in the most compact production suite available today. Built to television broadcast standards, Livestream Studio gives you real-time multiview, cut & fade, graphics overlay, video clip playback & recording (DDR) plus a full audio mixer with cross fade support.

    Traditional live video switcher hardware products offer live video switching without any additional capabilities. Most of these products will have limited or no built in capabilities needed to produce a multi-camera live stream. The Livestream Studio HD500 combines one portable, hardware live video switching product with everything listed below making it a “Truly portable, All-In-One live production Switcher.”:
  • Built in screen to view a preview of all the video inputs and outputs (Multiview) - therefore removing the need for external monitors.
  • Built in audio mixer - no need to purchase an additional audio mixing hardware.
  • Built in live streaming encoder - removes the need for additional encoding hardware.
  • Built in graphics and titling functionality - allows you to create graphics without the aid of an external graphic generator.
  • Built in recorder - no external tape or disk-based video recorder needed.
  • Built in DDR - no external tape or disk-based video play needed.

    Livestream Studio HD500 performs as a standalone broadcast-quality live video switcher when using one of its five live video outputs. The unit is ideal for a variety of applications, including in-venue broadcasting, live to tape production, network and local television programming with or without streaming live to the web.

    The product is compliant with key SMPTE standards and boasts a 4:2:2 video signal from input to output. It is made to the same exacting standards required by broadcast television.

    For producers who want to stream live video to the web and mobile devices, the built-in Livestream encoder is just a click away.

    Livestream Studio HD500 goes wherever work takes you – it fits into a case the size of a carry-on bag. From a built-in screen to built-in Blackmagic Decklink Quad and Studio cards, you get the features you need in one powerful, truly portable device. Simply open up Livestream Studio HD500, plug in your cameras, and you're ready to go.

    Livestream Studio HD500 is more than 50% less expensive than competing SDI integrated switcher/streamer products, which aren’t even portable! Thanks to the sheer power, small footprint, and leaner price tag of the product, you no longer have to compromise. All aspects of Livestream Studio HD500 add up to an incredible value and make a visible impact on your live events.

    At Livestream, we get live events. We understand the kind of pressure producers face before, during and after the show. We’re so committed to ensuring your success that we offer free phone support seven days a week for the first two months. Plus automatic software upgrades are free, which means you get new features on your existing hardware when Livestream releases updates.

  • LIVESTREAM HD500 FAQs

    What does “Multiview”
    In order to produce a live multi-camera show, a producer needs to be able to view all the camera inputs in real-time and without delay in order to “cut” the show live. In large television control rooms, this is done by stacking many television monitors in front of the producer, thereby creating a big video wall of all the inputs and outputs for the producer to view. A multiview is a newer approach which combines all the live video inputs and outputs on a single screen.

    What else is required to stream live using the Livestream Studio HD500?
  • SDI camera(s) or SDI video source(s)
  • Internet Connection via wired broadband to connect to the Ethernet port of the Livestream Studio HD500
  • Power
  • Livestream Producer Account and/or an external live video encoder to send the video output to other live streaming service provider or content delivery networks (CDN)

    How do you stream to other live streaming content delivery networks and service vendors?
    You can stream in one-click to the Livestream service, but if you want to stream to other platforms such as Youtube Live, Ustream or to a content delivery network such as Akamai or Limelight, you can do that too. Simply connect any of the Studio HD500 live video outputs (HD/SD SDI, HDMI, Component, S-VIDEO, Composite) to your favorite software encoder (via a video input device) or hardware encoder and you will be able to live to any platform, using the Livestream Studio HD500 for live switching and file recording.

    How is the Livestream Studio HD500 different from Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere?
    Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere are editing software. This means that they can help you edit a video clip (a file) from video footage recorded on cameras, but do not allow you to produce a live video feed from live video sources. For that, you need a live video switcher instead of editing software.

    How does the Livestream Studio HD500 compare to the NewTek TriCaster 40?
  • The NewTek TriCaster 40 is All-In-One
  • The NewTek TriCaster 40 only supports analog video inputs and outputs - it does not support SDI or HDMI
  • The NewTek TriCaster is not truly portable - you will need to purchase a case/bag and transport a computer monitor with an additional case/bag

    How does the Livestream Studio HD500 compare to the NewTek TriCaster 455?
  • The NewTek TriCaster 455 is All-In-One - except for the screen which is not built in or included
  • The NewTek TriCaster 455 supports HD/SD SDI - 4 inputs vs 5 inputs on the Livestream Studio HD500
  • The NewTek TriCaster 455 is not truly portable - it is a large product in both form and weight and does not include a built-in screen
  • The NewTek TriCaster 455 price is more than double the Livestream Studio HD500

    How does the Livestream Studio HD500 compare to the BlackMagic Design Television Studio, ATEM 1 M/E & ATEM 2 M/E?
  • The Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers are a great value but not All-In-One. They provide graphics and audio mixing but recording, DDR and streaming require the purchase, transport and configuration of external equipment. An additional computer or ATEM Control Surface is also required for control and an external monitor is also required to view the multiview.

    How does the Livestream Studio HD500 compare to Telestream Wirecast, Ustream Producer & Wirecast for Youtube?
  • Telestream Wirecast (and its repackaged/rebranded variants, “Ustream Producer” and “Wirecast for Youtube”) are software products - they require the producer to purchase and configure computer and video input/output device hardware.
  • Telestream Wirecast doesn’t support output or recording to broadcast quality standards :
    -No full field rate Multiview is included - a “Camera Preview” function however exists in a separate window but drops frames/fields
    -No SDI live video output to external in-venue monitors, broadcast networks, or external video encoders
    -No frame accurate and field accurate video recording with support for 1080i
  • Livestream will in the future be releasing a software-only version of the Livestream Studio for Mac and PC, designed for the needs of producers who would prefer to work with their own hardware configurations. The software version will uphold the same broadcast quality standards as the hardware version.
